On 8 May 2013, my wife visited Imaging. Because of the results of the ultrasound test, the sonographer arranged for an immediate referral to Gynaecology outpatient department. That was good, because it did away with the need for a separate visit. However, and what was not good, was that attempts in Gynaecology to measure blood pressure failed due to malfunction of monitor. The pressure cuff became over-inflated and caused pain and temporary indentation of the skin of my wife's arm.
I expect that this was just a temporary problem, the rest of the visit went well. I have spent many happy hours in various departments of Kidderminster Hospital and will go there again if my GP advises
